I really am interested in hearing from you about the quality of this photo I shot of my Maine Coon cat with my new 85mm camera. He was just awakening from napping and in the midst of him stretching and yawning I was able to snap this. It was shot at 2PM with lighting from a window facing west in the background, f/1.8, ISO 1000, 1/100, AWB, handheld. I'm really hoping to learn from your feedback. Thanks so much.

Exif: F Number: 1.8, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 1/100 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 1000, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 85.00 mm, Model: Canon EOS 7D
